• The factors and differences in incisions for face-lifting in women and men are presented and discussed in detail. The recommended approaches hide scars effectively, allow the hair growing in front of the ear to be left in its original location, and prevent future hair growth from being too close to the ear, which would make shaving or washing difficult in men.
